Developed by Share Our Strength, Cooking Matters for Kids is a cooking-based nutrition education program that empowers kids in 3rd-5th grade to make their own healthy meals and snacks and to make smart choices wherever they go.

During the Spring of 2017, the No Kid Hungry NC/UNC SNAP-Ed Child Nutrition Project offered Cooking Matters for Kids classes in partnership with Interfaith Food Shuttle at three Orange County Schools afterschool programs – Grady Brown, New Hope, and Central.

“My favorite part of cooking class is the cooking, the learning about new foods, and basically everything!”
